I am a material girl.

Bluewater Shopping Centre – where dreams are made of. Yesterday we spent hours in awe of all we could buy, every store became a tease. It therefore prompted me to compile a list of things I feel I need in the near future:

  1. 16GB Wifi and 3G ipad
  2. An iphone
  3. All the furniture in Lom Bok (Though I’d settle with the Maharani range in John Lewis)
  4. The entire new collection in Zara (for myself and DS)

I don’t think I am entirely to blame for this acquisitive nature of mine. I am purely a product of this capitalist society we live in, where we desire money and work hard to better ourselves. Despite this, I like to think that my greed does not always correlate with my expenditures and I live within my means.

But does the extent of my desire for material goods breach the criterion set by society? It is hard to determine in our modern day the line which separates the overindulgent from the norm. Whilst some would classify my wants and needs as excessive, it would not seem dissimilar to another individual’s desires.

Let’s be honest, I am not alone when I say I want an ipad. They are, after all, the ultimate definition of cool.
